The National Spanish Examinations (NSE) are online, standardized assessment tools for Grades 6-12, given voluntarily by more than 3800 teachers throughout the United States to measure achievement and proficiency of students who are studying Spanish as a second language. The examinations can be used as a motivational competition for students as well as for assessment purposes.
